I posted it in the MMA thread but it's worthy of it's own. This is fuckin' awesome.

Young MMA fan with Down Syndrome gets his wish: Time in the octagon with former UFC fighter Nate Quarry - The Washington Post

Jake "The Snake" Beckmann is a 19-year-old high school senior who had a dream of competing in a mixed martial arts match. He didn't let the fact that he has Down Syndrome get in the way of diligent training, and on Saturday, he got his wish, taking on MMA veteran Nate "The Rock" Quarry at the "Rumble at the Roseland" in Portland, Ore.

Very cool, great story and nice of that guy to 'come out of retirement' for that - that shows a lot of character.
